Crispy Baked Fish with Balsamic Mustard Sauce

In a word:  Delicious.....

The sauce was a bit tart and tangy, but it was incredibly good.  It worked perfect with the mildness of the fish.  And to top it all off... check it out:  1 piece of fish (Tilapia) with 1 tablespoon sauce (and believe me, that is enough sauce) is only 157 calories and 3 grams of fat!! YAY!  Delicious and healthy... What more could you ask for??

I go away for 5 minutes and then there you are! I have some frozen tilapia in the freezer (well, of course it's in the freezer - it's frozen!). Don't have any bread crumbs at the moment though. That can be fixed.

I want you to know that it's all because of you that I now own my first Panko bread crumbs. :-)I love the sour cream in this recipe. I just need to track down the talapia and I'm all set!

The fish does look so crispy on the outside and flaky, tender inside. The sauce sounds delicious too.
